I. M. YEREMEIEV (1887 – 1957)

The article is devoted to the study of the biography and scientific and pedagogical activities of the scientist, breeder of the world-famous variety of Ukrainka winter wheat, and teacher, professor Ivan Maksymovych Yeremeiev. Ivan Maksymovych was born on January 7, 1887, in Romny, Poltava governorate. We analyzed the main stages of the scientist's life and career based on archival sources and scientific publications. 

He received his primary education at the Kursk Real School, and in 1904 entered the Kharkiv Institute of Technology, Faculty of Chemistry. However, due to his involvement in revolutionary activities, in 1907 he was forced to emigrate to France. The future breeder received higher education at the Agronomic Institute of Nancy. It was there that he began his scientific work under the influence of outstanding scientists, studying the latest views and methods of agronomic science. 

After returning to the Russian Empire in 1915, I.M. Yeremeiev worked for some time at the Ivanovo breeding and research station in Okhtyrka, and from 1917 to 1939 at the Myronivska experimental breeding station in Kyiv governorate. During this period the team of breeders, including Ivan Maksymovych, developed the world-famous variety of winter wheat «Ukrainka 0246».

In the 30s, the scientist switched over to work at the All-Union Research Institute of Sugar Industry, where, along with breeding, he was engaged in scientific and pedagogical activities. And in 1936 he was awarded the degree of Doctor of Agricultural Sciences.

In the 40s Ivan Maksymovych worked as the head of the Northern Dvina breeding station of the Arkhangelsk region. From 1951 until the end of his life he lectured at the Uman Agricultural Institute. 

This study also focuses on some aspects of his personal life. In 1917 he married a student of Kyiv Polytechnic University Oleksandra Heorhiivna Vlaikova. They had two children.

Key words: I. M. Yeremeiev, a scientist is a breeder, agronomic science, scientific activity, wheat, breeding, Uman Agricultural Institute, Uman National University of Horticulture.
